About Kev Heritage

I am proud to be an Independent/ Indie Author. I am a self-publisher who creates my own novels. I write the content (using a team of beta-readers and grammar fiends to help edit my work), I design the covers and do all required formatting. My novels are available as paperbacks and e-books.

I discovered science fiction and fantasy at an early age and nothing was the same for me again. I wrote my first story on the island of Santorini, Greece. It was sunrise on a Thursday. Thursdays have always been good to me. I am a Twitter nut and a lover of technology.

I have worked as a driver’s mate, factory gateman, barman, labourer, telesales operative, sales assistant, warehouseman, Student Union President, university IT helpdesk guy, British Rail signal software designer, premiership football website designer, mobile banking content team lead, gigging musician, graphic designer, stand-up comedian, sound engineer, improv artist, magazine editor and web journo. Although I don't like to talk about it. Mostly.

I am English and reside in the seaside town of Brighton.

My debut novel is Blue Into The Rip – a sci-fi, climate-change time-travel adventure. Book #1 of the imaginatively named Into The Rip Series. More Info here: http://ow.ly/qWPWe
